From River to Shinning River

Summer is synonymous with outdoor concerts. Do you even know what happened at Bonnaroo? I actually didn't think that was your scene, but I know you enjoy tunes on a hot summer night. If you are in NYC this summer, you should check out the River to River festival that has crept into the FiDi since 2002. This annual festival is happening now, and lasts until August. Each summer the schedule offers a wide array of programming, which are all free of charge to the public. In a response to September 11th, the purpose is to revive the downtown health through cultural programming. Tomorrow night you can go check out the NYC Opera's Magic Flute. You don't have to deal with Lincoln Center, and you don't have to get all dressed up. Most events are outside, so you can soak up the nature, and feel cultured while doing it. If you work down there get out of the office and check out a lunchtime concert. It will revitalize and motivate you to finish that huge report you have due at the end of the week. Drive in movies are not exactly an option in this city, but check out a movie downtown. For example, Monday July 6th, The Seven Year Itch is playing for your viewing pleasure. No use coming full, check out the restaurant showcase from the local dining establishments in the area. So no excuses that there is nothing to do this summer, with programming every day, maybe you should get a tent for Battery City Park so you don't miss any of the action.
